Winter cheese and wine pairing at Lanzerac estate, Stellenbosch
Winner of the KLINK Award for the Best Deli on a Wine Farm, visitors to the historic Lanzerac estate during the month of July can sample a selection of finest cheeses, carefully paired with wines from their Premium range.
Your platter consists of a selection of eight local cheeses, served with homemade preserves, chutney, biscuits and breads. The appetizing selection of cheeses include the Dalewood Languedoc, Dalewood Huguenot, Cumin Boerenkaas, Brie Superlatif, Healey’s Farmhouse Mature Cheddar, Karoo Blue, Karoo Swiss and Pépé Charlot Artisanal Goat’s Cheese.
Lanzerac’s Premium wine tastings consist of five generous pours of the recently released Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Chardonnay 2014 (Michelangelo Gold Medal winner), Merlot 2014, Pinotage 2013 (Michelangelo Trophy winner for Best Pinotage) and the Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (Veritas Gold Medal winner). The cost is R195 for two people and includes the cheese platter to share plus the premium wine tastings. Lanzerac truly does offer one of the most luxurious, welcoming tasting experiences in the Stellenbosch area and I highly recommend a visit to this fine estate.
This winter warmer will be available seven days a week between 9am and 4pm until 31 July 2016. To book for your Cheese & Wine experience contact the Lanzerac Tasting Room on 021 886 5641, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website.
